Motorcycles and scooters can be fun and exhilarating, in part because of their danger.
Any traffic accident has the potential to cause serious or fatal injury, but motorcyclists and scooter riders are at an even higher risk. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 27 times more likely than other motorists to lose their lives in an accident. Motorcyclists and scooter riders don’t have the protection drivers of closed vehicles do. They are also less visible to other drivers and are less stable than vehicles with four wheels. As a result, they are more likely to be seriously injured and have a motorcycle or scooter injury claim.
Motorcycle and scooter accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Nerve and spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Broken bones
